The Roland DJ-505 DJ Controller is the latest instalment into Roland DJ range, promising to deliver uncompromising performance capabilities for the discerning modern day DJ.

Blending the advanced performance capabilities of Serato DJ with the classic percussive sounds of the TR drum machines, the DJ-505 grants you all the tools you need to create impressive beats and rhythms on the fly. Sync your beats to your Serato tracks, embed unique transitions, create live remixes or compose your own music-the opportunities are endless.

Much like its flagship counterpart the DJ-808, the DJ-505 guarantees complete flexibility in its ability to remix and produce, permitting the artist with unprecedented creative freedom. With its standalone mixer functionality, slim footprint and DVS upgrade path, Roland's DJ-505 is the perfect companion to both turntables and CD players.

Perfect for mobile applications, the DJ-505's portability and professional-grade build quality make for a controller that can withstand the hardships of road and deliver consistent performances every night.

Not only durable, the DJ-505 can confidently express pristine quality audio regardless of its application. Ideal for club DJing, live performances and production based scenarios, the Roland DJ-505's elasticity make it the ideal counterpart to the modern working DJ.An integrated 24-bit/48 kHz audio interface and high-end Roland audio conversion for Master and Booth outputs make sure that the reproduction of source audio is pristine in quality. Balanced XLR outputs allow you to connect directly to a professional PA system whilst allowing you to monitor your mix via the booth outs and seperate 1/4-inch and 1/8-inch phone jacks.

Fitted with two large low-latency platters, you can expect an extremely responsive and lag-free performance, great for scratch enthusiasts seeking seamless transitions throughout their performance. Largely illuminated, the outer rings of the jog wheels provide a reference to the status of each deck at an immediate glance. Made from aluminium brushed plates, the DJ-808 and DJ-202 controllers deliver great feel and rugged durability.
